Michael Wright Interview - September 11 Survivor

I now know what it's like to have a 110-story building that's been hit by a 767 come down on my head. For better or for worse, it's part of my life. There are things I never thought I'd know that I now know. The Anachronist, New Yorkers Aren't Rude. You Are. And I mean that title with the utmost of respect.

The Anachronist, New Yorkers Aren't Rude. You Are.

I’ve been a denizen of this fair[ly crappy] city my entire life, in one way or another. I spent some time in LA during college, but don’t worry, I got over it. The one thing, though, that I’ve consistently heard from around the US is that New York is a rude city. This is, I feel, based on a fundamental misunderstanding of what this place is. Zona Rosa - Rooftop Coconut Drinks, Tacos, and Tequila. If you were looking for a place in Brooklyn whose kitchen used to be an Airstream and makes coconut drinks with a machete on their roof, you came to the right story.

Zona Rosa - Rooftop Coconut Drinks, Tacos, and Tequila

We now present Zona Rosa, the second project from the team at nearby Mesa Coyoacan, which wants to serve you breakfast burritos in the morning and a watermelon margarita on its roof all afternoon. The rooftop is sleek and modern like a balcony at some arty millionaire's villa in Mexico City, and if you order the Coco Loco they'll hack the top off a fresh coconut with said machete and pour some tequila in it. Drinks not involving huge knives include the watermelon margarita and a serious tequila list. If for some reason you have to sit inside, it also happens to be pretty nice.

New York City’s Hidden Subway Station. Deep in the belly of New York’s subway system, a beautiful untouched station resides that has been forgotten for years with only a limited few knowing of its existence.

New York City’s Hidden Subway Station

Stunning decoration with tall tiled arches, brass fixtures and skylights run across the entire curve of the station, almost a miniature imitation of Grand Central Station… But it sounds like something straight out of Harry Potter, right? It was opened in 1904, with the hope of making it the crowning glory of the New York subway system in elegant architecture and a place for commemorative plaques to honour the work that had resulted in such a successful underground mass transit system. It was to be the original southern terminus of the first ‘Manhattan Main Line’; however the station was closed and boarded up in 1945.

NINJA NEW YORK Restaurant, Finest Japanese Cuisine. Impressive Time-Lapse Video of Artist Drawing New York Skyline. London-based artist Patrick Vale has created “Empire State of Pen“, an incredible time-lapse video of himself drawing a remarkably detailed account of the Manhattan skyline from the Empire State Building.

Impressive Time-Lapse Video of Artist Drawing New York Skyline

The photos were captured using his iPhone over the course of 4-5 days. Although condensed into just 90 seconds, this video gives one a greater understanding and appreciation for the level of detail involved in creating a drawing such as this. Besides the fact that the artwork is awesome, I love watching the coffees disappear on the left hand side. The music playing is Moanin’ by Charles Mingus. 10 of the best budget hotels in New York.

Takeout story: Behind bulletproof glass and out on a bike for a Chinese restaurant in Mott Haven. You live in Manhattan below 125th Street, or gentrified Brooklyn, or a quiet part of Queens.

Takeout story: Behind bulletproof glass and out on a bike for a Chinese restaurant in Mott Haven

You want Chinese food. You’re not following some recommendation from an old Sam Sifton column or a food blog, though. You just want some chicken lo mein, sweet and sour chicken, egg drop soup and fortune cookies. You go to that drawer full of menus with dragons or pandas or bamboo on them, and the random Chinese characters, and the obligatory promise of fast and free delivery. And in 25 minutes or so a Chinese man on a bike will come to your door and you’ll maybe drop him a xie xie with your tip and he’ll give you a bye bye and he’s gone.

Apotheke is a bar influenced by the late 19th century in Paris. Absinthe plays a big role, and herbs, fruits, and a very cool style.
